"Over a thousand and five hundred years have passed since I formed the pact with my master... You are either truly skilled or fools indeed to ignore his warning. I will dine on your blood that wishes to mingle with the Unclean!"
—Minotaur, Shin Megami Tensei IV
Minotaur (ミノタウロス, Minotaurosu) is a recurring demon in the series.
The Minotaur is a beast of Greek myth, part bull and part man. He was kept by King Minos in a labyrinth created by the great Greek engineer, Daedalus. Every year, Athens was forced to send tribute to King Minos in the form of sacrifices to the Minotaur. This continued until the hero Theseus slayed the mighty beast after entering the labyrinth in whom the monster was and using the Ariadne Thread to recover his way home. In some tellings, the Minotaur is given the personal name Asterion.
A demon who made a pact with King Aquila of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado 1500 years ago. His task is to kill those who go too deep into Naraku and attempt to go to the Unclean Ones Country. He will be impressed with the strength of the Samurai as the battle goes on or unimpressed depending on Flynn's choices, which will either decrease his strength or Flynn's. After being defeated he will apologize to his dead master as their pact ends with his death, but believes they can entrust the future to the prentice Samurai.
